Am I A Jew? The book, the website, Facebook fan page, and hopefully a commemorative lunchbox

June 14th, 2012  |  by  |  Published in Edumucation

Dear incredibly committed, loyal, and well-read DadWagon readers, Some of you, from time to time, may have noticed casual (or not so casual) mentions of a book, Am I a Jew: Lost Tribes, Lapsed Jews, and One Man’s Search for Himself, that I’ve been working on, well, for a long time. Guess what? It’s done but you can’t read it! But I do have plans to rectify that situation (publication date: 8/31/12), and I plan to tell as many people about it as possible.

In the meantime, I have made progress on other, more PR-related fronts. First, I now have a personal website in direct competition with this one! You can learn more about my book at the cleverly-named theodoreross.net. You can also pre-order the book, which would make my mother very happy. If you’re on Facebook–and G_d bless you if you’re not–I have a “fan” page that you should “like” (it’s very likeable). Twitter? @theodoreross is me. Those who want my phone number, blood type, home address, and fortune cookie recipe should email me at ted@theodoreross.net. I (or Nathan, who I’ve nominated my major domo) will definitely respond before my children are in high school (including the one still not yet born). Whew. That’s enough pimping for one day.
